If there is going to be a death penalty in this country, there should be no doubt as to someone's guilt before they are executed. I don't believe in the death penalty because so many death row prisoners have been exonerated over the years. I wish this country would go the way of the other nations that have rejected the death penalty. I feel sorry for Officer MacPhail's mother for the loss of her son, but I also feel sorry for Troy Davis' family since there is a strong possibility that he may have been innocent of the crime in spite of the court decisions. Anderson handled the story well and with sensitivity and he clearly sympathized with Officer MacPhail's mother. Officer MacPhail's mother appeared to be uncertain whether or not the death of Troy Davis would end her suffering--maybe it will maybe it won't, but I'm sure Anderson could tell her something about "closure" and how it doesn't necessarily exist. One family that lost a son, father and brother may have peace now, but another family is suffering because their family member may have been unjustly put to death. It's all terribly sad.

Well said aries moon, well said.
But remember this is Georgia.
Wasn't it South Carolina that still flew the Confederate flag after all these years?
Someone had to tell them that the Civil War was over.
In some cases, perhaps, not in this particular one, the death penalty is a necessary evil.
In the home invasion case in Conn., death is the necessary evil for both of the accused evil doers.
Unfortunately, justice isn't always served because we have a jury system that is fallible.
Nothing less than a public hanging and torture is suitable for those two inhuman beasts.
AC should have the families of Troy Davis and Officer Macphail on his talkshow. The sentiment is there for a well rounded discussion.

@Judy, I agree, having both families air their perspectives on either of his shows is something I'd like to see Anderson do. A very tough subject, but an important one.
